Prevent Strategy

As part of Holy Cross Church of England Primary School's commitment to safeguarding and child protection, we fully support the Government's Prevent Strategy and take guidance from teaching approaches, to help build resilience to extremism.

Please read our Preventing Extremism and Radicalisation Policy here.
What is the Prevent Strategy?

The Prevent Strategy, is a Government strategy, designed to stop people becoming terrorists, or supporting terrorism.

The Prevent Strategy:
  • responds to the ideological challenges we face from terrorism and aspects of terrorism, and the threat we face from those who promote these views.
  • provides practical help to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism and ensures they are given appropriate advice and support.
  • works with a wide range of sectors, which include education, criminal justice, faith, health, charities and the internet.
At Holy Cross CE Primary School, we ensure that we teach our children about the Prevent Aims.  This is achieved through quality circle-time and PSHE activities.
Within each year group, we teach our children to be safe and recognise the possible dangers that they may face.  Teachers ensure that this is implemented in a sensitive and age-appropriate manner.
Additionally, we protect children from the risk of radicalisation, for example, by using filters on the internet, in order that unsuitable material is unable to be accessed.  We also vet visitors, who come into school to work with pupils.
